OMID Ad Support

Latest Release: May 12, 2021

Pioneered by the Interactive Advertising Bureau, the Open Measurement standard for video on the web is a giant leap forward in reducing the dependency on VPAID ads for viewability measurement. Open Measurement gives publishers transparency and control to manage the third-party verification scripts rather than running them through the ad creatives themselves, where they cannot be accessed. Our 8.20.0 release brings out of the box OMID-compliant XML support for this industry-wide specification through our VAST ad client. Google is expecting to include full OMID support soon, which will be available through our Google IMA client as soon as it’s available.
